After a hugely successful run on BBC Four, the dresses created during ‘A Stitch in Time’ are available to view in-the-flesh at the National Trust’s Ham House and Garden, Richmond-upon-Thames. Sophie Johnson, Senior Visitor Experience Officer has reached out to us for a number of large format foamex print jobs over the last few months and we’re now very excited to be working alongside Sophie and the team to display the garments featured in the popular show.
One of the costumes was inspired by Ham Houses’ very own painting of Charles II, which hangs in the Marble Dining Room. The costumes have a supporting printed image of the original costume and a description, printed on 3mm foamex supplied with free-standing supports to the reverse. The finished products frame the costumes at Ham House and adds a great finishing touch to the exhibition.
With a growing audience and momentum-gaining social media interest, Sophie was keen to get the boards printed and delivered within the quickest possible turnaround. We were able to finalise artwork, print and dispatch within a quick turnaround.
Using industry leading digital printing techniques, we print directly to the foamex board or can offer vinyl applied options. We carry stock of 3mm, 5mm and 10mm, we are often asked for black foamex which we can spot print to, and in instances we printed on 19mm. With large capacity machines we are also able to offer printing on a single sheet size up to 10x5ft. We are one of the UK’s leading foamex board suppliers.
